As you may have heard in the news, devastating rainfall, floods and mudslides hit the Kerala region of India this past August. Over 400 people were killed and 800,000 were displaced. This was the worst flood the country has seen in 100 years. Many of the people affected were small-scale farmers, who lost their homes, fields and crops in the floods. The region is now in the process of rebuilding and that’s where we come in!
We’re partnering with our friends at Alter Eco to raise money to help these communities in need. The farmers of the Fair Trade Alliance Kerala (FTAK) provide the coconut oil used in Alter Eco’s Chocolate Truffles. These farmers were heavily devastated by flash floods and mudslides, where entire farms were washed away.
From now through the end of December, $1 from each purchase of a bag of truffles will be donated to help these farmers rebuild.
Thank you for your support! We hope to see you soon.
